I recently just looked into possibly buying a new pet and came across a service that would allow me to basically get a free one via adoption, and for a while I strongly considered it not only for the low cost but also because I was convinced that it was much more fulfilling since the pets were abused or abandoned and probably needed a home more than the pure bred ones that I assume we're being taken cared of completely. However, upon reviewing the terms of the agreement I was really put off because apparently if I chose to go about it this way then I'd have to submit exterior and interior shots of my house as well as giving my incomplete identity and I'd have to agree to possible surprise visits. I'm not exactly questioning their methods since they are the experts, but It made me wonder why it was so and if it was effective in getting these pets adopted since I imagine many would be put off as well considering we could just buy a much nicer pet for just a hundred dollars and avoid all the trouble. Anyway, my question is does the adoption agencies in your country also do it this way? Does it out up you off as well like me or am I the only one that is having trouble with sharing that much information with pet adoption agencies especially considering most of them are independent and non regulated therefore probably not as secure and that there are alternatives that seem much better and easier?
